I moved!!

Good Evening!

I just finished moving my blog to wordpress.com. I am going to see how I like it, people say it is amazing, but I am kind of iffy. It took a really long time and I have this place down. I will give it a month, what do you say?

Susan G. Komen Hockey Night for the Cure!

The ice wasn't this neon looking pink, but is was amazing!

First off I just would like to say it was a BLAST!!! I haven't had that much fun/enjoyed a sports game like that in a really long time. We had the most amazing seat (Section 103) and we were only 20 rows away from the ice. I enjoyed watching all the locals that go to almost all the games. They were some very interested characters.  My goal for the next game is to figure out what tickets do you get to sit in the lazy boy type of chairs with a table/ledge/ your own Waitress.  Bonus is that I can't wait to sign up for the Susan G. Komen Walk here in San Antonio on April 30th! The game itself was very edge of your seat kind a good amount of the time, plus the HUGE crowd just made it perfect! It was posted that over 14,000 people went, the best part for me was that I could see all those people but I didn't feel over crowded.

I am not a big fan of new crowded places, I think that it is from working at Disney for so many years and being forced to work in small inclosed areas surrounded by tons of people I didn't know. A bonus that I didn't even realize until Carrie started talking about it, is that next Friday I will be back at the AT& T Center for the San Antonio Rodeo and watching Toby Keith. I am not a big concert person, but I am going with like 40 other people and am really looking forward to it.

What to do Breakfast?

Awake to another cold morning here in South Texas (38F) but so have all of you in the rest of the country. What are your plans for breakfast today? I have two ideas up for debate at the moment just due to me being tired and lazy. It's my Friday and I have a real weekend, in other words two days off in a row! Oh yeah! I was going to try and push it to three, but I have a dr's appointment on Monday morning so I figured four would be over the top and a waste. I am planning at the dr's office to ask about a dietitian to go to for all my questions of late. I love my dr's so much, we always get off topic and start talking about different healthy options in life. Yes, I know my dr's actually sits down and talks with me crazy idea but true. 

Breakfast option one: 

Target brand cinnamon bagel with butter/peanut butter. 


Bob Red Mill's Granola, Apple Cinnamon kind. I have been wanting to try it so I just bought it off of Amazon. It's very good, but I need more than the 1/2 cup serving yet I don't know what I should add to it. 

What do you think?

Amazing Dinner/Dessert coming right up!

This is from In Sweet Treatment's blog since my picture isn't working.
The twic pic below is of the amazing Carrot Cake Cookie Sandwiches I made last night! I know, it's as crazy as it sounds! I love carrot cake, which is odd because I am normally a chocolate or cheesecake only kind of girl. I went to a place in Tucson called Beyond Bread, and I was hooked. 

First for dinner though I made on of our favorite soups, Chicken and Gnocchi. It's so easy but so good, we make just the way the Food Network does, only we double it. What, I like to eat the same thing over and over again for a couple days if it that good, right? 

Hope this helps you to figure out what to do with your night! Have an amazing day!

What to you think? 

I am very happy to say that my dryer got fixed today with NO problems, I was really worried because the company that came out to fix it has really bad ratings. I always check these kinds of things. I am going to make it a point tonight torate them a 5 star! My guy was amazing, funny, answered all of Jrod's questions and took his time to do it right even though we were his last stop of the day! I feel this company may be given a bad rap because ... well I just don't know. The other bonus of the day is that is was covered by warranty so it cost NOTHING! 

Now last night we stopped at Whole Foods, I know two Saturdays in a row what is up with that! I picked up an Emergen-C pink lemonade pack, because I LOVE pink lemonade.Emergen-C Vitamin C Fizzy Drink Mix,... My old boss swore up and down that these products were amazing, but has anyone else tried them? I feel that I might be behind in the times not having this before. Does it really work? If so I am going to stock up for Spring Break time! 

It's been an odd and amazing day working a half day and getting so much done. All I have left to do is dinner and I am going to make some carrot cake cookies because I bought a tons of carrots last Saturday and I can't let them go bad! Have to run Jrod is taking over my computer!

New Living Room!

We have been on the look out for a new coffee table and end tables for months now, due to the ones we have were from my parents that we got when I was 12 yrs. old. They still look amazing though, but the wood is too light. We already have a good home in mind for them. We have been going out the past couple of days to all the furniture stores in the area, but today we hit the mother load! Copenhagen is having an EVERYTHING in the store is on sale!! I can't seem to find pictures of anything that we got, but it is coming at the end of next month so I will keep a look out. We also got an amazing FULL standing mirror, it is ... I don't have the words to describe it, a long with a side table for Jrod's man cave so he doesn't have to use a folding tray table anymore.  The craziness of everything I almost bought a PURPLE couch that would have gone in the man cave (Jrod's idea, mine was for the woman cave) it was leather and so nice, but I just couldn't do it. I am very thankful that Carrie gave me some web sites for beach themed furniture because that what I really want for the bedroom and woman cave. That was the adventure for today, had to work so not much else got done.
